Protecting Your Claim
If you receive a work-related injury or illness, immediately report it to your supervisor. If the injury or illness has gradually worsened over time (such as carpal tunnel syndrome), report it as soon as you think it was caused by your job. If you do not report your injury within a certain amount of time — usually within 30 days — you may lose your right to collect the workers’ compensation benefits to which you would otherwise have been entitled.
